Who was your reds MVP for the season? You can only name ONE player...I know its tough.
I give it to Hanigan. He handled our pitching staff so well, and adds a dependable bat. Consumate pro everyday. He barely edges out BP.

Didn't see Hanigan coming, although I won't disagree!

My first thought was Chapman.

BP - He has the most amazing reactions/instincts of any player I have ever seen.

Ryan Ludwick, 26 HR and 80 RBI in just 422 AB and went into beast mode when Joey hit the DL to help salvage the season when things looked scary. Then he hit .333 with 4 walks and hit 3 Jacks but never had anyone on base for them and made some big plays in the OF.

Phillips easily
Start to finish the best at his spot in baseball

But BP wasn't an all-star. Wait for it....wait for it....

Not sure how he's better than Cano

BP actually had his worst OPS season as a Red this year, he was a key player and played great D but can't see him as top 3 in team MVP.

What was Ludwick OBP when Joey was out?

July 15th was Joey's last game and September 5th was his first game back, in that gap Ludwick had a line of .340/.404/.647/1.051

Most Valuable Player? Joey Votto

Ryan Hanigan, for me its him hands down. The way he handles the pitching staff is amazing. I don't think it's a coincidence that Homer Bailey started pitching better once Hanigan started catching him!!!

I agree, I wish he would have caught Leake in game 4....never know

BP, hands down. Put him in the line-up wherever you want, he'll do it and do it well. Crazy good leather at second (if it's not gold glove worthy they should do away with the award)...played all the time!

Really the whole team that was able to win 97 games despite such a terrible strategist running the team. Easily the greatest collection of talent since the 1927 Yankees, maybe even greater. Hall of Famers at every spot on the field, other than the dugout.

LeClure should get some notice for being so consistent this year. The utility guy of the bullpen. He was awesome in the playoffs, as well.

Dusty is a Hall of Famer. Just look at all those titles he's won.

I recall predicting that batting behind Votto he would bat .270, get 30 HR's and 90+ RBI. Very few believed me. But if he had played every day he would have exeeded all those numbers.

Due to Votto's down time, and the fact that JC is a pitcher, I would call it a dead heat between Ludstick and BP.

You have to have 2 categories...Without pitching you are nothing....
In order Chapman, Hanigan, Cueto...Chapman because do you remember how agonizing each game was with our $12mil CoCo?? Hanny because he calls just an excellent game & he kept Latos off the ledge & kept him focused...& without Cueto you had nothing to build from...he was the 'Rock' & Bailey & Latos followed his lead....

For me without Luddy we never had a chance to get here...

For me without Luddy we never had a chance to get here...In spite of being a HUGE Luddy guy, I have to say that winning the div. by 10 eliminates any 1 player from making a difference. I estimate that w/o Lud you still win by from 2 and 4 games.;)

You can't even spell his name. I'll compare my knowledge of baseball to your's any day of the week.

Who is your choice Kwado? Chapmon?Fillips? Ludwig? Broose?

It's not spell check...you didn't know how to spell his name, much like about 20% of this board.

He calls a great game. He frames the ball as good as any catcher I've ever seen. How did everyone else handle Chapman? No coincidence that nearly every time guys like Arrendondo and Simon struggled it was with Hanigan not in there. Controlling a staff of guys like Cueto, Latos, Homer and Chapman...talent amuck but those guys need the hand holding and encouragement and no one seems better at it.

He also had a great year keeping would be runners from advancing.

No way am I saying that Cueto, Latos, Phillips, Ludwick and Bruce are poor choices or even wrong....but we won a ton of low scoring games and he was managing perfection behind the plate. No one was overwhelming on this TEAM...he gets my vote.
